As we get into the dog days of the offseason, I figured I would start a weekly series to keep the blog somewhat active while there is little to no news. Basically these posts will just be a collection of thoughts from the previous week or so that dont really need to have an entire post on them. So lets get to it, eh?
Acquired: Signed a two year, two-way contract on July 11, 2014.
On July 11, Minnesota announced a pair of signings. The first was the re-signing of defenseman Jon Blum, and the second was the signing of Jordan Schroeder to a two year two-way contract. Schroeder previously spent his NHL/AHL career with the Vancouver Canucks organization.
Acquired: Signed a one year contract on July 2, 2014
On July 2nd, the Wild signed free agent forward Joel Rechlicz to a one year, two-way contract. Capgeek lists Rechlicz as having a AHL salary of $125,000 and a NHL salary of $600,000 for the upcoming season.
Tomorrow, the Wild kick off their annual prospect Development Camp at Xcel Energy Center. During their time here, the players will take part in on ice and off ice drills, strength and conditioning drills, nutritional instruction, and a few fun activities (as previously seen in the Becoming Wild series).
